Man trapped inside ATM slides 'Help me' notes through receipt slot

Man trapped inside ATM slides 'Help me' notes through receipt slot

As people were still using the cash machine to withdraw money, he made a decision to send notes through the receipt slot, which said: "Please help".

Police rescued the man and he was not hurt, according to KZTV in Texas.

"We have a once-in-a-lifetime situation that you'll probably never see or hear about again", Corpus Christi Police Officer Richard Olden told a local Fox affiliate. The note read, "Please help!"

A Texas man who found himself trapped inside a cash machine slipped "help me" notes through the receipt slot. "I'm stuck in here". So to try and get out, he started slipping notes to the customers through the machine. "Please call my boss", giving the phone number.

Olden says some people thought it was a joke, but someone took it seriously and called police.

One perplexed bank customer, however, did flag down police after receiving the unusual withdrawal request. "So we're all thinking this is a joke - this has got to be a joke", Olden said. "It's got to be a joke".

"It was just insane", senior officer Richard Olden told KZTV.

An officer kicked in the door to the room, freeing the man.

Officer Olden told local media: "Everyone is okay, but you will never see this in your life, that somebody was stuck in the ATM, it was just insane".
